We walked up from the beach, it was not a long walk but very steep in places. The temple looks very beautiful and the views are amazing, very peaceful here worth visiting.

Combined my visit to the butterfly park to take a look at this place. A lovely budhist temple with commanding views over the coast. Entrance is free and well worth spending a few minutes having a look around.

We walked to see this from Benalmadena Pueblo as we had seen when going on the bus to Mijas. There are staff there who tell you about it and you are able to look inside. There are some nice views from here

The sound of the chimes from the nearby Butterfly house sets the ambiance for entry into the "stupa". There is always a volunteer there to explain the temple and its history. The feelings of peace , tranquility and culture are truly experienced at this site....More

It was closed when we first saw it so made a point of going back to see inside. It is a very restful place and gives you a lift.

Well, I most certainly wouldn’t go to see just the temple, although the ruins behind it do add some value. however, the view point just to the side of it is lovely looking across fuengirola bay. If you combine these two with the butterfly 🦋...More

Well, the monument as shown on the picture is accessible 24 hours a day, directly off the main road. Easy to get to. However, there are ruins behind it and the I believe are only open for set timings. Hope above helps?
